Long Description:
From the Tennessee encyclopedia website (http://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/imagegallery.php?EntryID=C063a): "The Chattanooga Plow Company was once the largest factory in Chattanooga and an international leader in plow design and production. From its inception, Sanders advertised his plows as the plow designed for southern soils and for use expressly in the South. They focused on a “southern plow,” the one- or two-horse plow most commonly used by southern farmers. The aggressive sales increased the business to the point where the Chattanooga Chilled Plow became a style of its own, known simply as the “Chattanooga plow.” "
